4. Grow our own food
This is the normal practice in Amish communities. In regular society today, most of us wait till our health is in a depleting state before we start eating natural foods. If possible we can plant some of the foods we eat at home so we can eliminate some costs and have some good healthy foods at our disposal. Some of the foods we can plant are green leafy vegetables in pots and even create hanging gardens if we are limited on space around the home.
